1999 Honda Civic Si 2dr Coupe


Great car, fun to drive, good
performance, good handling, looks good,
and reliable too. I love tearing around
in this car every day. It had no
torque, but Jackson Racing fixed that.
I still can't believe how much power I
can reliably squeeze out of a 1.6L
motor. The brakes were also mediocre,
but AEM took care of that. A few more
mods and this car will be more fun than
my M3 was, at a fraction of the price.
If you get one, put a good alarm on it
because people like to steal stuff off
of it, like the wheels, and especially
that little red Si sticker on the back.

Best Features

rev-happy engine, plethora of available performance mods, clean sporty lines of coupe

Worst Features

ABS, big time. Limited slip differential, after a few mods, the open diff becomes very annoying. Some parts are also very expensive, $122 for a shift knob is insane and it should not cost more to replace the stock wheels/tires than it does to buy a set of 17's. Better seats.
